July 4, 2012 – Wednesday Sabotage

Sabotaging Thought: It’s not fair that I can’t eat like everyone else on the 4th of July.

Response: My body doesn’t know or care that it’s a holiday. It also doesn’t know or care what everyone around me is eating, it only knows what I eat. But it’s not all or nothing! If I stay in control, I can still enjoy some food AND enjoy all the benefits of losing weight.

July 3, 2012 – Tuesday Reality Check

If you think, “It’s not fair that I have to work so hard at dieting,” remind yourself, “Yes, it is unfair that some people have to work at losing weight and some don’t. But I have to remember that everyone has unfairnesses in their lives and this happens to be one of mine, but at least there’s something I can do about it!”

July 2, 2012 – Monday Motivation

It’s a new month and the perfect time to commit to working on a healthy eating plan. Instead of saying, “I’ll start tomorrow/next week/next month,” start RIGHT NOW and if you do, imagine how much better you’ll be feeling by the end of the month!

June 29, 2012 – Friday Weekend Warm-up

For many dieters, staying in control of their eating is harder on weekends because their days are less structured. But remember, just because your time is less structured doesn’t mean your eating has to be! Sticking to a schedule (like continuing to have regular meals and snacks) can make staying on track throughout the weekends so much easier.

Any time you make a dieting mistake, it’s important to ask yourself, “Why did that happen? What can I do the next time to change the outcome?” Once you figure these two things out, move on!

June 27, 2012 – Wednesday Sabotage

Sabotaging Thought: I don’t deserve credit for practicing my dieting skills because I should have been doing them all along.

Response: No I shouldn’t have! Before I started this program I didn’t know how to get myself to do these skills and besides, if it was easy, nobody would be overweight. Now that I’m learning, I deserve so much credit for my hard work every step of the way.

June 26, 2012 – Tuesday Reality Check

Just because food is free, doesn’t mean you should eat it (after all, it’s not calorie-free). Similarly, just because you've paid for it doesn’t necessarily mean you should eat the whole thing. If you eat extra food, even if it's free or you’ve paid for it, you’ll gain weight.

June 25, 2012 – Monday Motivation

When dieters get off track, they sometimes forget how much better it feels to be in control of their eating and to be feeling good about themselves and their eating. If you’ve been off track, remind yourself how great getting back on track will feel and start right this moment!

June 22, 2012 – Friday Weekend Warm-up

Remember – no matter what your sabotaging thoughts try to convince you of (Eat a lot of extra dessert! You won't regret it! This one time doesn't matter! You’ll feel great if you go off track!), on track days FEEL SO MUCH BETTER. Have an on track weekend and GUARANTEED you won’t regret it come Monday morning.

June 21, 2012 – Think Thin Thursday Tip

Often much of the food dieters eat standing up doesn’t add to their sense of satisfaction – both physically and psychologically. Making the effort to eat everything sitting down may enable you to cut out hundreds of calories from your diet without even really noticing the difference.
